Create an Outdoor Kitchen in a Luxury Gazebo
Creating an outdoor kitchen is on many people’s wish lists. But how exactly should you go about creating one? Installing a luxury gazebo on your property could take the hard work out of making your dream outdoor cooking and dining space.
A beautiful wooden gazebo can enhance any garden. It can give a covered area that is still open to the natural world around it. Yet one that provides some protection from the elements. As the perfect indoors/outdoors space, it could be the perfect start to your outdoor kitchen – a kitchen that you can use without worrying about a cloud burst or the odd shower.
Why Buy a Gazebo to House Your Outdoors Kitchen?
Let’s face it, the weather here in the UK can often leave something to be desired. How often have you planned a barbecue or garden party, only for the skies to open? When you have a gazebo ready and waiting, this takes the hard work out of making an outdoor kitchen and dining space that you can use throughout the summer whatever the weather may bring.
Adding Basic Elements to Your Outdoors Kitchen
Once you have your gazebo, the fun part can begin. You can begin to design your dream outdoor kitchen space. A luxury wooden gazebo offers the perfect framework from which to build, and you can add all the elements you need.
So, what key things do you need in an outdoor kitchen? Of course, exactly what you would like in your outdoor kitchen will depend on your cooking style, and your own individual tastes. You can keep things as simple as you like, or create something much more complex and sophisticated.
Usually, an outdoor kitchen will have:
- Somewhere to actually cook. Be it a barbecue, a pizza oven, a solar oven or an elaborate outdoor stove or outdoor fireplace.
(Of course, where you are cooking, fire safety should be paramount. Make sure you have safety in mind when planning your outdoor kitchen, and make sure that you make good use of non-combustible materials where these are required.)
- A sink (where hands, produce and utensils can be washed).
(This will probably involve being connected to a water supply, so this is something to bear in mind when siting the structure. That said, there could also be potential to hook up to a rainwater harvesting system on the gazebo itself.)
- A work surface and prep space.
- A table and chairs, where you can dine, and enjoy your culinary creations.
Luxury Additions for Your Outdoors Kitchen
In addition, your luxury gazebo could also be used to house other luxury elements, such as a fridge (which could be solar powered from a panel on the roof of the structure), and perhaps some storage space for outdoor cooking gear and utensils.
Your outdoor kitchen could also have some beautiful lighting, so that the space can be used into the evening hours. You might use low-energy LED lights, and again these could be solar-powered. You might also decide to keep things low-tech and light the space with some simple candle lanterns.
You can also beautify the space in a range of other ways, putting your own stamp on things while still allowing the natural beauty of the solid and hand-crafted timber structure to shine through.
When you install a gazebo, you won’t have to worry about creating the main structure, but can rather indulge your creative side in kitting and fitting out the space to perfectly meet your own personal needs and desires.
You might have a perfectly good kitchen inside your home. But there is something very special about being able to cook outdoors. A gazebo to house an outdoor kitchen and dining area could be just what you need to make the most of your outside space.
